BS in Geology (University of Florida) 2017             

Research Interests:

Paleoenvironmental change, paleoclimatology, palynology, and limnology. Reconstructing paleoclimate records, their variability, and environmental change over time through proxy analysis of sediments. Specifically, looking at climate trends during the late Holocene in the Neotropics to determine how people existed within their environment and reacted to change.

MA in Anthropology (Florida Atlantic University) 2018

BA in Anthropology (Indiana University) 2007

Research Interests: 

Ancient settlement pattern analysis and landscape use of people in pre-contact coastal Ecuador.  More specifically, the focus of my research is the utilization of remote sensing technologies, including LiDAR,  along with GIS for the purposes of mapping and conducting spatial analysis of the surface modifications under the canopy of the cloud forest of the Pajan mountains of Manabí.  My goal is to understand the extent and organization of Manteño settlements, the last culture that thrived in the region before Spanish colonialism.
